As a new wireless product, it probably got held up in government certification.

Thank you

Doubt that very much since the RADIOPART is identical to the current flucard. I myself feel very misled by the launch messaging regarding tethering ... now proving to be not available for some time !

Sofar we cannot use the K3 in our studio at all where tethering is a MUST (i mean FULL tethering - not just FTF/eyefi ).

Hope our friend Tomasz Kos comes with a working PK-solution soon for K3 ...

Looks like a price increase as well. I believe it was first said to be £99  , now £129

It is a disappointment, but I would rather wait until they have it right than get something that is buggy to use.

We tried tethering in our studio and found it to be more of a distraction than anything else except for product shooting.

Yep, that's it, it's coinciding with the big FF announcement. It wasn't a half-baked afterthought at all, yeah, they are just saving it for FF.

And productshooting is EXACTLY what we do in life !! 

Would prefer a wired solution anyway, even the "limited" 645D version would have been acceptable and taken them about 6 hours in development since the microcode from K7 is still in K3 !

Re: Flucard available in march?

Early users with the generic flucard reported that the card ran very very hot. Possibly a issue for the camera and needed to be dealt with
